“Coming Home” by Maryann Jordan is book number one in the “Baytown Boys” series. This is Mitch Evans and Victoria Bradford’s story.
We met Mitch when he was working with the FBI in the Saint series. Mitch agreed to take over for his as the Baytown Police Chief. Mitch’s dad had to retire due to health reasons. He is glad to be back with his family but you sense that he is not completely happy.
Victoria’s grandmother died so she has moved back to Baytown to run her grandmother’s Inn. She had a teenage crush on Mitch but they haven’t spoken in years due to something Victoria was told about Mitch.
Mitch and Victoria’s path eventually cross. Mitch wants a second chance at a relationship. The chemistry and attraction between them is stronger than ever. Will she take a risk and give Mitch a second chance?
One of Victoria’s guest was poisoned. Victoria is spending more time with Mitch as they try to figure out who poisoned her guest and why. This time together is making it harder for Victoria to ignore the attraction between.
This is a really great romantic suspense. The author did a great job of keeping the reader in the dark on who poisoned Victoria’s guest. You get suspense, steamy romance in an entertaining story.
FYI, includes mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
